I had the weirdest delayed reaction to this post and I keep thinking about the idea that the knicks got fleeced. They got Carmelo Anthony! And the Knicks are playing pretty good basketball.
I think the better term is...the Nuggets did a great job getting anything at all, considering Melo didn't wanna be there and would have left the next season anyway.
